Re: Thanks!

I wrote to a couple of US sites, antoher two german sites, and asked to my local dealer in IT:

My analysis then:

If you buy in the US:
1. For certain the warranty is only one year
2. Probably you have to send it to the US for warranty repair.

US warranty covers only US area: you have for sure to send back camera in US

If you buy in Germany:
1. For certain the warranty is 2 years if you have it repaired in
2. They tell me its 2 years if I have it repaired elsewhere in the EU
3. Not sure if its 2 years if I have it repaired outside the EU

EU warranty covers all EU countries: you can buy in DE and ask to local Minolta dealer to assist you if needed

If you buy elsewhere in the EU (like the Netherlands):
1. Not sure if the warranty is 2 yrs or 1 yr
2. Would be grateful for clarification

2 years is an EU regulation, each country is adopting it in its law but it isn't a completed process, so you could find someone with 2 years (here in IT for example) and someone else still 1 year
